The Nimmer Award

The Nimmer Award was established by the Tippecanoe Education Association in 2015, to honor Kathy Nimmer, a Tippecanoe School Corporation teacher and TEA Member who was Indiana “Teacher of the Year” in 2015, and a finalist for National Teacher of the Year.

The Nimmer Award is a $2000.00 scholarship awarded to a student or teacher in the Tippecanoe School Corporation who want to pursue higher education, but has had to overcome adversity in order to succeed. Life is full of obstacles that people have to overcome in order to succeed, though some people face more adversity than others. When adversity arises, it can cause hardships. Some forms of adversity are disabilities, financial struggles, personal tragedies, or just unfortunate circumstances that interfere with educational goals.

The Nimmer Award will be granted annually to a current TSC Senior or TSC Teacher who is continuing their higher education. The award will alternate each year, beginning with a student in 2016, and continuing with a teacher in 2017, and alternating each year thereafter.

Application Process
